Candida is one of many varieties of fungus that live in the human body. It is a type of yeast that, under normal circumstances, lives in small amounts in the mouth, belly, and on the skin without incident. Certain environments, however, cause candida to grow out of control. The resulting infection is candidiasis.
Some candidiasis can become invasive — entering the bloodstream and traveling to the heart, eyes, bones, and brain — potentially causing a life-threatening infection. Supporting the body’s ability to target upstream Candida triggers is critical to successful treatment.
In order to support the body’s ability to beat Candida, it is important to target the environment that allows Candida to thrive.
